Accepting Our Fragility
Posted on 24th October 2022 at 14:07
Everything in life must grow to its fullest potential and then gradually degenerate and diminish in vitality and resources. This is life and it is part of the unwavering universal laws that are completely inclusive of all. Naturally, most find the instability and fragility of one’s own existence uncomfortable and it induces uncertainty and fears about the future.
Humanity cannot prevent cosmic cycles or outwit universal laws and allowing yourself to drown in fear and anxiety will not help you or anyone. We must change the way we think and feel about change, loss and death. Existential crises provide an opportunity to unearth unrealised talents that propel you to developing a greater feeling of purpose and able to express authenticity. Believe it or not change, loss and death make way for the new and you can imagine it as a glass of water coated in algae… it's no-good drinking it because it is likely to be detrimental to your wellbeing, so you need to empty the water out, clean the glass and put fresh, clean water in.
Things to consider during this time are:
Get comfortable with not knowing the future and taking a risk
Be mindful of what archetypes you are playing – is it a beneficial or detrimental archetypal role you are enacting
Don’t get too attached to the outcome or destination, allow the journey to unfold and evolve
Recognise opportunity and don’t let fears stop you
Let go of shame, pride and fear
Acknowledge what you have
Consider new ideas and concepts
Find practical solutions to issues that take into consideration the effects on others.
